The “Pretend to Put Your Dog on a Diet” Challenge Is Taking Over TikTok

After you’ve pranked your dog by tricking them into thinking they’re being put on a strict diet (and after you’ve won their affections back with a full meal and a bunch of snuggling), there are a few other pranks you can pull on your dog that we learned from TikTok. The first one is pretending you’re going to pet your dog:

Reach out to give your furry friend some much-deserved head pats, but keep your hand juuuuust above their fur and see how they react. Judging by the videos we’ve seen of this prank so far, they’ll probably go nuts trying to earn your affection. And, of course, make sure to give it to them after you’re done recording the prank (as if you could resist)!

Another dog prank involves pretending that your dog is invisible. When they’re in the room with you, stand up and call their name, then pretend that you can see them. Your dog will become more and more confused about why you apparently can’t see them even though they’re right in front of you… until you put an end to the prank and (once again!) give them all of the snuggles.

At the end of the day, dogs are the best for all kinds of reasons. One of those reasons is that they’re excellent sports when they’re being pranked. Many of them are also pretty brilliant, though, so don’t be too surprised when they learn to prank you right back.
